About the Authors
  • Economic, technological, social and environmental transformations are affecting all humanity, and decisions taken today will impact the quality of life for all future generations. This volume surveys current commitments to sustainable development, analysing innovative policies, practices and procedures to promote respect for intergenerational justice. Expert contributors provide serious scholarly and practical discussions of the theoretical, institutional, and legal considerations inherent in intergenerational justice at local, national, regional and global scales. They investigate treaty commitments related to intergenerational equity, explore linkages between regimes, and offer insights from diverse experiences of national future generations' institutions. This volume should be read by lawyers, academics, policy-makers, business and civil society leaders interested in the economy, society, the environment, sustainable development, climate change, and other law, policy and practices impacting all generations.

    • Provides an interdisciplinary discussion of intergenerational equity and justice from various aspects and perspectives
    • Introduces the reader to international and national systems and mechanisms for implementing and protecting intergenerational equity and justice
    • Generates a dialogue regarding the state of intergenerational equity and justice as hard and soft law concerns
